insurance from the blast. host: there is an update on that this morning in "of the baltimore sun." "the 70,000 surviving firefighters and other first responders who worked at the world trade center after the attack will be entitled to free monitoring treatment for some 50 forms of cancer." that is an update this morning on the part of the story. remember, you can also send us your comments via twitter, twitter.com/c-spanwj. or you can send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. john, independent, baltimore. caller: i would agree with what is being set by most americans, that we need to move on. that does not mean that we forget what has taken place, but as a nation we need to be united and we need to really know what the threat is in this country. i think -- i was just watching a brookings on c-span that aired yesterday. defensiveness by the audience there, and also the gentleman from the brookings institute -- my goodness, you would think that this is just a little party. we do not seem to understand what has happened, especially if you look at other western countries, most notably france, wit
, that was thrilling. my father had been mayor of baltimore. one of the leaders of the kennedy campaign in maryland. the first night we got there, it was the dinner for him. we all saw the president, the family very differently. after he made his speech at the stadium, which was stark, no one ever did that, fabulous seats. my father want to go to a famous restaurant in los angeles. we did. my father said this is really an expensive restaurant, how did you choose the restaurant. compared to baltimore, it was very expensive. i remember him not complaining, but making the point when the door opened and here comes senator kennedy. he came right over, what did you think of the speech? ask me what i thought. all of a sudden the prices came way down. >> suddenly it was not worth it. take a one of the most memorable single images of this convention ran on the front of "the new york time" was you with the women members of the house. but was a like to stand up there? >> it was pretty exciting. that was only half of those we have in the house. it was pretty exciting because of the connection. it was so exciti
issues. ed is an independent in baltimore. caller: good morning and thank you for c-span. the first action of the violence was an organized protest stemming most likely from 9/11. we found a video made over a year ago to put the blame on it. it is a reactionary congress here in the u.s. that all of a sudden wants to do something about it or reactionary administration. these were planned protests, not grass roots outbreaks of violence. we have blamed it on a year-old video. eventually we will lose some rights because of its. host: the occupy wall street movement is one year old today. this is the question put forth by "usa today" -- arkansas, john, a republican. caller: good morning. this particular question raises another interesting question. who is this u.s. government that will control free speech? is it the same u.s. government that allows illegals to access our education, medication, housing, employment sectors? is it the same u.s. government that limits the futures of 1 million aborted babies each year although 50% of the people are against it? the same government that forces
in the papers this morning. here's the baltimore sun -- this i romney was in california and spoke before a hispanic group there and then the video came out. he had a press conference last night around 10:00 p.m. eastern to respond to the video. [video clip] >> it is not elegantly stated. i am speaking off the cuff in response to a question. i'm sure i could of stated it more clearly and in a more effective way than i did in a setting like that. i'm sure i will point that out as time goes on. we don't even have the question in that snippet nor the full response. the person who has the video, i wish they would put out the full material. but it is a message i will carry and continue to carry, which is the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes, because my discussion about lowering taxes is not attractive to them, therefore i am not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. this is really a discussion about the political process, of winning the election. i want to help all americans have a bright and prosperous future.
baltimore sun" encapsulate the speeches yesterday. they pointed out that president barack obama made an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east. [video clip] >> i believe that this message must be rejected by all those who respect our common humanity. i have made it clear that the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims, and everyone. we are the home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. host: more headlines following these speeches, "obama talks tough on mideast extremism." "uses addressed to regain the initiative on f
at this in the baltimore sun -- let's listen to mitt romney talking about the issue of taxes, on nbc yesterday on meet the press. [video clip] >> people at a high income level will have fewer deductions and exemptions. as numbers will come down, otherwise they would get a tax break. i want to make sure, despite what the democrats said at their convention, i am not reducing taxes on high-income taxpayers. i am bringing down the rate of taxation but also bringing down deductions and exemptions at the high end so the revenues stay the same. the taxes people pay states the same. middle-income people will get a break. on the high end, what's coming in and say it's the same -- what's coming in stays the same. but we encourage small businesses, because they hire people. host: that was mitt romney yesterday. we are asking you about your message to congress. fred on twitter -- chicago, matt on the democratic line. caller: the thing that you just showed on the newspaper when you first open the show, a house republican agenda for this week is to pass a bill to eliminate the clean energy loans and the sequestrati
could change even after voting began on october 2. back to the phones. baltimore, maryland. dorothy is on our line for democrats. go ahead. calm i like early voting -- caller: i like early voting. mitt romney lies too much and he is a thief. devils.ike they come to kill and destroyed. host: this is from this morning's edition of the washington post. the headline, why is it so hard to register to voted? she writes, americans have been registering to vote since the 19th century. north dakotans do not have to register to vote. they can show up on election day. if most americans are not registered by october 9, they will be shut out of this year plus all election. there are several states such as maine that allow the election day registration. she goes on to write, americans by now are accustomed to registration. to most people throughout the world, the u.s. system is mystifying. on the governments create eligible voter lists, in tabling the majority of their adult population to vote. the government maintains the role. -- the roll. victoria is the author of "day electoral dysfunction."
me. host and that social media includes our phone calls. bruce, baltimore, good morning, independent line, thank you for waiting. caller: how you doing, good morning. i watched the democratic convention and you also speak about how obama captured bin laden and all the praise of how senator obama did such a great job during the war and so forth. i think the credit should go to george bush. george bush is the one that set up all these ways of catching bin laden, setting up going to war in iraq. but all the democrats, all they are like perform colmes, they want to give obama all the credit for all the polices george bush set. host: thank you bruce. allen colmes. guest: i think to some extent you're right. i think the end of the iraq war, for example, was already in play when obama took office and in fact president obama kept many of the bush national security people around him like robert gates, the secretary of defense, at the beginning of his administration. so to some extent, you've actually got a point. but in terms of bin laden, you know, there's a clip of george w. bush at one poi
